Migration Guidelines from Intel® Arria® 10 to Intel® Stratix® 10 for 10G Ethernet Subsystem

The Low Latency (LL) Ethernet 10G (10GbE) Media Access Controller (MAC) Intel® FPGA IP core includes Intel® Stratix® 10 and Intel® Arria® 10 design examples that are compliant with IEEE 802.3-2008 specification. The interfaces between Intel® Stratix® 10 LL 10GbE MAC Intel® FPGA IP core and physical interface (PHY) IP core are different compared to Intel® Arria® 10 LL 10GbE MAC Intel® FPGA IP core with PHY IP core.

These migration guidelines are meant for those are familiar with Intel® Arria® 10 LL 10GbE MAC Intel® FPGA IP core. Use these migration guidelines if you want to migrate your Intel® Arria® 10 LL 10GbE MAC design to use Intel® Stratix® 10 devices.
